Jim Boedicker: In this age of high tech music, it’s sometimes nice to know that someone can still make music “the old fashioned way”. Jim’s unique “fingerstyle” guitar playing appeals to a wide range of audiences. His repertoire includes many humorous songs, occasionally some trick guitar work, standards, and serious songs that can speak to and stay with his audiences. His casual style works equally well in a large concert setting or a small intimate group, and he especially enjoys performing family venues.
Jim will be performing at the Pleasant Grove rest stop from 9:30 till 11:30 am.
